Consequences Of Brexit [Part 9] Read First Post Before Posting

Vaati

Let me make this perfectly clear - any personal attacks will get you a suspension. The moderating team is not going to continually issue warnings. If you cannot remain civil and post within forum rules then do not bother to contribute.

 

In addition to remoaner we are also not going to allow the use of libdums or liebore - if you cannot behave like adults and post without recourse to these childish insults then please refrain from posting. If you have a problem with this then you all know where the helpdesk is.

I'm not demanding anything or whinging about anything.  The truth is I enjoy reading  and find amusement at the ramblings of the anti democratic / anti democratic mob who post here daily because it makes the victory of leaving the EU even more sweeter.  I'm just looking at the bigger picture for the Sheffield Forum and don't think the comedic scribbles of the anti Brexit / anti democratic and anti Tory mob are likely to encourage normal looker ons who read the discussions to join the forum and contribute.

 

 

And how long are you going to continue whinging about a democratic choice your own people made?

 

Have you any plans to have "still suffering the consequences of Brexit" on your headstone?

You literally asked for the thread to be locked. I'm not whinging about a vote, I'm showing the consquences. As for having "still suffering the consequences of brexit" on my headstone, I hope we'd have worked through them by then, but then again I am an optimist. Stop running the country down.

Once in a while? You must be one of the more regular posters on this forum.

 

Much like arguments against Brexit on here have no impact in the real world, the ranters against bike lanes and cyclists delaying drivers have no impact outside this bubble. Its a forum for discussion and putting across opinions, nobody is expecting the world to change because of it.

Hmmm... :huh:


Post numbers would prove that not to be the case...


... so maybe you just happen to notice my valuable contributions more than the tedious efforts of the more prolific posters? ;)

 

And thanks for your concern but...


... I can assure you that my digestive tract is fully functioning! :hihi:

That's the spirit.

Absolute nonsense.  It was the Maastricht  Treaty which was signed in 1992 that led to the inevitable of the UK leaving the EU.  There was no whinging at all about the 1975 referendum result.  If the EU the was same organisation  in 2016 as the EEC was in 1975 then there would have been not much desire for the UK to leave the trading bloc.  

 

Another embarrassing contribution from an anti Brexit / anti democracy poster.

To be honest I don’t think that there was much whingeing from the general population after the Maastricht Treaty.We signed up and enjoyed the benefits,but perhaps it did stir up some in the ruling classes who resented perceived higher powers.

The general rabble rousing started with Farage who concocted an argument based on illegal immigrants and generally confused enough of the masses to think this was the meaning of freedom of movements.

Well we have achieved the aim of hindering freedom of movement,but not the problem of illegal immigrants.

Brilliant

Exactly.  We originally joined  a trading club comprised of similarly-industrialised and developed nations - a very sensible and mostly beneficial arrangement.

 

That sadly evolved into a sprawling mess of disparate nations, trying to exist under one set of rules which did not and could not suit all, and administered by an unaccountable bunch of control freaks who do not even have the common sense to understand that relocating your entire headquarters every few weeks is insane.  Add to that the EU was operating like a socialist commune writ large, expecting  the UK and Germany to fund dragging under-developed nations into the first world.  Totally unacceptable.

 

We would otherwise still be in the Common Market.

Looking at recent posts, there’s also history rewriting on an industrial scale 😂

In the full knowledge that it was going to become a USofE, which was a central plank of the "no" campaign at the time.

The same applies to members of any Common Market, which by definition has a common set of rules. :?

They're not "unaccountable", but I agree on the relocation thing... however, it still only represents a tiny fraction of the concessions the UK secured in it's favour.

The UK was one of those economically under-developed nations that had to be dragged into the first world when we joined :?

 

That "dragging" helps the UK economically, more people to buy our goods and services.

Which would, on balance, have many of the same issues.

The UK had only been a member of the then EEC (european economic community) for less than three years in 1975 and it made sense to stay in for economic and trading reasons. It was far too early to hold a referendum then. What is rather amusing is in 1975 the SNP including Alex Salmond were anti EEC and  a higher proportion of Scottish people wanted to leave than English people.
